India Affirms Commitment to Strengthening Africa's Global Role in Security and Development

India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Security Council, Ruchira Kamboj, delivered a resolute address affirming India's steadfast commitment to enhancing the role of African nations in addressing global security and development challenges.

Speaking during an open debate on "Maintenance of international peace and security," Kamboj underscored the enduring friendship between India and Africa, rooted in historical ties and shared solidarity. She emphasized India's belief that Africa's rise is crucial for achieving true multipolarity in the global order.

Highlighting India's commitment, Kamboj expressed support for Africa's priorities, both bilaterally and multilaterally, across various sectors including education, health, infrastructure, agriculture, and energy security. She stressed the importance of genuine partnerships that empower African nations and align with their developmental goals.

The Indian representative outlined several key action points to bolster Africa's global influence. She advocated for reforming the UN Security Council to include permanent representation for African nations, advocating for a regional approach to peace and security issues, and prioritizing the fight against terrorism in Africa.

Kamboj reiterated India's call for greater African representation in the Security Council and emphasized the urgent need to combat terrorism in the region. She underscored India's commitment to empowering the Global South and rectifying historical injustices, stating that the denial of permanent representation to Africa is a stain on the council's credibility.

Addressing the pressing security challenges in Africa, Kamboj called for a regional approach and urged the Security Council to support collaborative efforts among African countries and regional organizations. She emphasized the serious threat posed by terrorism in Africa and called for increased support and resources to address its root causes.

Kamboj stressed the need for well-mandated and well-resourced peacekeeping operations and special political missions, with clear exit strategies and prevention of external interventions in African affairs.

Highlighting India's proactive stance, Kamboj mentioned India's successful campaign for the admission of the African Union into the G20 during its 2023 presidency. She urged the international community to use the upcoming summit as an opportunity to demonstrate commitment to reforming the multilateral system and amplifying African voices.

Kamboj reaffirmed India's dedication to advancing Africa's role in global security and development. She urged all nations to give due credence to African member states and support their efforts towards a peaceful and prosperous future.
